Reusable letter array
Letter layout for 7-by-many puzzle

This type of puzzle has seven letters, all different, but each letter can be used as many times as necessary in making a word. Hence it is a "seven-by-many" puzzle. In these puzzles words must have at least five letters. There is no upper limit on word length.

There will be at least one word that uses all seven letters, but it may well have more than seven letters. As in all Chihuahua puzzles, the letter in the middle must be used in every word.

There is a daily 7-by-many puzzle. You can also create your own random puzzles or under the Your Puzzles tab.

To create a 7-by-many puzzle in Your Puzzles, open the New Puzzle form and select the "Allow letters to be reused" option near the top of the display. To play 7-by-many puzzles other players have created, click on the Open... button, to bring up the Puzzle Menus. and look for a tick/check mark in the "Reuse letters?" row.

Because each letter can be played multiple times, you cannot submit your word by double-clicking on the last letter, as you can in 9- and 10-letter puzzles. Submit a word by clicking the arrow icon Submit button to the left of the word or the Submit button towards the bottom left of the display. In these puzzles you cannot rearrange the letters played by dragging them, but you can remove them one at a time using the backspace button Backspace button  width= towards the bottom left of the display.
